Scanning at the UTSA Libraries

Need to scan an article from a book or journal? The UTSA Libraries have several options for you.

Scanner Locations

  • John Peace Library on Main Campus: JPL has four scanners, all located in the ScanSpot area near the main stairway on the 2nd floor.  There are three high-speed KIC scanners and a desktop document scanner that can scan 2-sided pages.
  • Downtown Library: The Downtown Library has one KIC scanner located near the public computing area.  A scanner for general use is attached to a computer located on a table between the computer cluster and back wall.
  • Applied Engineering and Technology Library: The AET Library has one scanner for general use.

Using the Scanners

High-speed KIC scanners allow you to quickly and easily scan pages from books, magazines or journals and email the files or save them to a USB drive.

Please limit your time on the KIC scanners to 20 minutes if others are waiting.

Please refer to our Copyright Policy for concerns or questions about scanning and copyright law compliance.
